Tyler - Tyler ISD held a press conference this morning to address a growing problem with some of its students.
Executive Director of Student Services Jeff Collum says students are becoming involved in a 'choking game'. Collum says kids either choke themselves or other to get a high, but are really killing brain cells.
The conference was called because students within the school have reported 10 to 12 incidents this year so far. School officials want parents to be more aware of the situation and will be sending letter out today to parents.
KETK will bring you more details on this story as they become available.
